Active ingredients: Diazoxide
Neutral glass 20 ml ampoule contains 300mg Diazoxide BP.
Diazoxide is a peripheral vasodilator and has qualitatively the same effect on blood vessels as benzothiazine compounds, but the effect is more rapid and profound. Unlike benzothiazines, diazoxide is non-diuretic and causes retention of sodium and water. It causes a prompt increase in blood glucose by a direct inhibitory action on the secretion of insulin by the beta cells in the Islets of Langerhans.
